    Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    For those of you who (like me) were fans of John Skladany. He is D coordinator at Houston and they play TTU Sat night. Don't forget to set your tivo before you head to the Army game. ESPN2 @8:15.

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    I was very impressed with Houston, at least offensively, when they upset Okie State a couple weeks ago. That was a fun game to watch.

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    I wish we Skladany to coach the D against Army. He knew how to shut down an option pretty well, and coached the best D's I've seen at ISU. Go Houston I guess!

    I loved Skaldany, and I wish Chizik had held on to Skaldany instead of giving him his walking papers in favor of a buddy, but I'd take Wally Burnham coaching my team's defense just about any day (and yes, Burnham was able to get his South Florida defenses to stop the option pretty well as well).

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    I liked Skladany as well, but I think we got a pretty darn good D coordinator right now

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    Skladany had pretty good schemes, just didn't have the horses all the time.

    I really thought he had Missouri's offense figured out. Chase Daniel did not look comfortable in D Mac's last game, and I think Skladany was responsible.

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    I liked Skladany but the story of Houston is the story of offensive fire power.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Yea, he's got his work cut out for him. In that conference, with that offense he's going to find his defense in some shoot outs.

    I liked Skladany as well.

    He was the unfortunate benefeciary of some bad offenses his last few seasons at ISU.

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    Skladany was let go last Friday. I guess there's a possibility he could end up at USF if Mac happens to make a move back there, but it sounds like the frontrunner (at the moment) is Skip Holtz.

    Re: Skladany Defense vs TX Tech

    wow that sucks


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I've thrown Mac's name out there on a couple of national posts, but it ain't sticking.
